Rob Knight Principal

Mr. Knight received his Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Southern Mississippi in 2001, his Master's Degree from William Carey University in 2009, completed the MAPQSL in Administration in 2012, and his Specialist in Higher Education Administration in 2016 from William Carey University.  Mr. Knight has been in education since 2002 and joined the Petal School District in 2013.  

I am very passionate about public education and am excited about the educational and extracurricular  opportunities for students of the Petal School District.  I am excited about the chance to help students grow during this time period in their lives.  Providing a safe, nurturing school environment in which students can grow academically and with strong character is paramount.  I strongly believe that it is the job of the administration to be the instructional leaders of the school and to assist in the growth and development of the faculty and staff.  I look forward to hearing from parents and community members on ways that we can continue to make Petal Upper Elementary an exceptional place to learn for our students.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
